Paddycake paddycake bakers man bake me a cake as fast as you can! That old nursery rhyme couldve easily been about ciccioli! The traditional Italian snack (seen above bottom left) is a pressed cake of fatty pork made from any scraps of the pig which are shredded to perfection. It can either be prepared by slicing or in a very dry crunchy form. How do you like your ciccioli? Explore more traditional dishes of Emilia-Romagna with us at Nonna Box!
